After losing to Brandon again, Ash begins to lose hope and feel blue. Meanwhile, May is still thinking about her defeat against Soledad at the Grand Festival. Even the return of Beautifly and Skitty doesn’t seem to help. Then Professor Oak shows up with some gifts for Ash. Inside is a poster with Ash’s Pokémon’s hands and feet on it and the word fight across it, a lunch from his mom, a lure from Misty, and a postcard from Gary who is in the Sinnoh Region. The party gets bigger when Drew and Harley show up. Drew challenges May to a match, in which he will use his new Butterfree. Will this battle be able to snap May back into reality?
